Lecture hall with students

Guest students (or free movers) are enrolled at universities which do not have exchange agreements with the University of Copenhagen.

As a guest student you are required to pay tuition fees for the courses you take at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.

Courses offered by the faculty are held during the day, and you will attend classes along with students studying full-time bachelor’s or master’s programmes.









You can apply for single courses at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, if

  • you have a Danish residence permit, or
  • if you are citizen in a country where visa/residence permit to Denmark is not needed

If you do not fulfil these requirements, you can only apply to the University of Copenhagen as a full-time student. Only full-time students obtain a residence permit in Denmark.
